Moraine Park is the best campground in RMNP, hands down. IMHO. We always stay in spots that are on the south side. Miles

RE: 1990 Holiday Rambler Crown Imperial 37

. . . But they aren't all dead. Some of them are still around although they do require life support. Any coach does no matter how young or old. HR's are elegant, well-made coaches and even one that's 25 years old can still give good service. Miles

RE: Colorado Indecision--Where to go this week?

How long have you been in Colorado? We are also transplants (30 years). All of the outdoor locations and facilities along the Front Range are subject to heavy use by the public and things are fairly tightly-regulated. The best campgrounds are booked 6 months in advance. Expect it to get even worse as the Front Range continues to grow. Closed usually means gated. The options for dispersed camping along the Front Range are limited. Go to the individual Forest websites to get current info on open locations. Call the office for the Forest you intend to go to and talk to someone to check your information before you go. Making a mistake could lead to a citation and a fine. Before we bought the HR we used to have a '72 Winnebago Indian. I could drive that thing up many jeep roads. One of our favorite campgrounds was Rainbow Lakes outside of Nederland. I would suspect that Rainbow lakes is probably closed by now, but you could check. We have also camped in some dispersed camping spots west of Red Feather Lakes. The campground up there at Dowdy Lake is open year-round. Every one has their favorite places and you need to book them months in advance. You should also start looking farther afield. For you I would suggest Withers Canyon Trailhead at Picketwire Canyon south of La Junta (Comanche National Grasslands). It might remind you of places you have camped at in Arizona. It is close enough for a week-end. Be sure to visit the dinosaur track site. (I like to use a mountain bike to get there from the campsites.) We also like to go fishing and camping in the Flat Tops. If you are willing to drive for 3 hours you can get to places that don't see as much pressure. Enjoy your new state! Miles

It's understandable that you have a lot of questions. Try breaking them up into different posts for each subject area once you have done some more research. I can tell you that if you have difficulty affording your apartment it will be very difficult for you to afford a motorhome. My HR was in great condition when I bought it but I have already had to put as much into it as I paid for it after only 5 years. You are probably going to pay at least 15K for a (newer) older unit with a slide. Is that in your price range? I do wish you good luck on your new endeavor. Miles

RE: What Kind Of Tool Kit Do You Carry?

Extensive for any type of repair, including a mounted spare, jacks and tools for roadside tire changes. Miles

Ever tow a pop-up behind your class A?

I'm planning a trip for 6 of us in our HR including my 95 year-old mother and 3 adult children. There are not enough beds in the coach and none of us is willing to sleep on the ground in a tent anymore. I'm considering towing a small pop-up for an extra bedroom and storage space. Have any of you done this and how did it work out? Thanks; Miles

Re: Yellowstone campsites rated 30' or less

We are planning a trip to Yellowstone next year. We are planning to take a circular route that will include stays at Fishing Bridge, Canyon, Tower Falls, Mammoth, Indian Creek, Norris, Madison and Grant Village campgrounds. I find that several of these campgrounds have sites rated at 30' or less. Our HR is 34' but we usually have no trouble with many of the smaller sites we have camped at. My question is are we likely to find a site we can fit in among the sites that are rated 30' or less? or do they mean what they say when they say 30' or less?

RE: Elk Meadows IN Estes Park Co.

Moraine Park is by far the best campground in the area. Miles

RE: Holiday Rambler owners manual

There is a website classicwinnebagos.com. They have expanded their site to include all so-called classic and vintage RV's. They maintain a library and I'm sure their members would love to have a copy of your manual available. I guess even though my HR is a little newer I wouldn't mind seeing one. Send me a PM. Thanks.

RE: Onan NHE 6.5 points/condenser

As I recall, the top of the little box cap on the points is held in place by a small hex-head screw on the front, maybe one on the backside too. Use a small inspection mirror and a flashlight to be sure. Also have a magnet on your nut driver when you take it out. When I replaced the points on mine, my local John Deere dealer had them in stock. The part number is on the points. I think that you can upgrade to an electronic ignition but I haven't gotten around to it. The plug wire should go on a clip inside a rubber cap. Maybe you just pulled the wire end away from the clip. Good luck with your repairs. Miles

RE: Camping World and latex balloons

One night I boarded a red-eye flight only to find someone sleeping in the window seat that I had carefully pre-selected and paid for. He asked me if he could stay. He had no right to expect me to give up my seat, but having no great reason not to, I shrugged and sat down next to him. Miles

RE: NEED HELP Electrical Problems on Solenoids

Is the one close to the alternator on the firewall and looks like a pot with a lid? On my HR that one is connected to the aux. start switch. I don't have an isolator in the battery compartment. I called the manufacturer once and spoke to a rep who told me that those kind are rated for continuous duty. The best way to trace your problem is to get out a meter and start checking voltages: at the alternator (Mine is a dual output, yours may be too.), and at both sides and the middle of the solenoid. The solenoids do go bad occasionally. I had to replace mine last year. Miles

RE: Colorado State Parks

I have stayed at several Colorado State Parks including Fruita State Park. I have always been impressed by the quality of our parks and the people who run them. I agree with IDman that there must be more to your story. Separate permits are required for entrance and for camping. Entrance permits can be purchased yearly or daily. Instructions on placement are on the permit. Yes, if you are purchasing daily permits you will wind up with a few of them stuck on your windshield. Miles

RE: Best way to winterize yet still use unit in winter?

I thoroughly winterize my RV in the fall. I occasionally take a short trip during the off-season when there is good weather, usually for fishing. When I do I leave the water system winterized. I take along several square blue 5 gal jugs that have adjustable spigots that I put on the counter and run them into the sink for cooking and washing etc. I keep plenty of anti-freeze in the waste tanks. This avoids the winterize/de-winterize problem for me. Miles

RE: Who here eats better while RV'ing than at home?

You are not alone. My wife always fixes her signature dishes when we go camping. We often watch other campers grilling their hot dogs while we are dining on lobster, chicken cordon bleu, bananas foster, or other haute cuisine that my wife loves to make. Miles

RE: On the road generator problem. Help?

Ken, could you post an update on this problem when you get a chance? I would like to know what the cause is when you find it out. Miles

RE: Propane tank full?

Check and make sure that you don't have a lot of air in the tank. Miles

Where is the best bass fishing that won't cost an arm and a leg? Miles

RE: Colorado to Taos, NM

That is a good route. The view of Blanca Peak is beautiful. La Veta Pass isn't much more than a big hill as far as Colorado passes go. Have a safe trip. Miles
